If you have not heard by now, Michael Jackson died today of cardiac arrest. He was only 50 years young! I don't care about all the legal bullshit he was enthralled in over the last few years. This man was an icon. He was a father. He was a son. He was a brother. He was a humanitarian. He made MTV when MTV refused to even air videos by black artists. He transcended race before we'd ever heard of Tiger Woods or Barack Obama. He touched so many lives including mine. My favorite song is You Are Not Alone, and he truly is not. RIP Michael. You are The King of Pop. May your children and family find comfort in all the memories you've created and all the millions of fans who will let your music live on forever.
